Ladies’ Day win for Crocs

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

A LARGE home crowd for Ladies Day cheered on the Port Dou­glas Crocs to their fourth win of the sea­son last Satur­day.

The Crocs were up against Cen­trals Trin­ity Beach and the game be­gan with a stiff breeze blow­ing di­rectly across the ground, and judg­ing the wind made high mark­ing difficult.

The first goal to the Crocs came from a beau­ti­ful kick by new­comer Adam Boone.

There was an an­swer­ing goal by the Cen­trals who had had many more chances to score but kicked in­ac­cu­rately.

Boone kicked his sec­ond and then Jack­son Brown kicked his first.

Four straight goals by the Crocs ver­sus two goals seven be­hinds to Cen­trals.

Dylin Wear­mouth, Kurt Brad­shaw and Mark Nug­gin were show­ing out early in the first quar­ter.

In the sec­ond quar­ter, the game con­tin­ued in the same vein with fast, flow-on football and the Crocs con­tin­u­ing to kick ac­cu­rately for goal.

In the sec­ond half, the Crocs piled on the pres­sure, re­sult­ing in the Crocs’ boys pep­per­ing the goals.

In a bril­liant third quar­ter the lo­cals’ sus­tained footy ex­ploded the score­line.

Partick God­sell, Ben McCart­ney and Adam Boone had led the charge to an eight-goal quar­ter by the Crocs thanks to some great all round great team play.

The last quar­ter was more of the same for the Crocs, Jack­son Brown at his la­conic goal-sneak­ing best while Daniel Har­ris was hard in and un­der.

The goal of the day was kicked by Pat God­sell af­ter a blis­ter­ing run off the half­back line and a ter­riffic fin­ish.

Per­haps the pres­ence of the ladies had in­spired the play­ers to great heights.

Coach Brad Cooper is to be con­grat­u­lated on the way his boys have been fin­ish­ing full of run and play­ing out re­cent matches ex­cep­tion­ally well.
